Endometrial adenocarcinoma and mucometra (case report)
Reduced appetite, chronic abdominal enlargement and greenish vaginal discharge in a dog that has received depot gestagens over years. A pyometra, of course? Also other differentials need to be considered, as shown in this very interesting case report from Spain.

A 6-year-old female Alaska Malamute dog was presented for evaluation of abdominal enlargement referred by a local veterinarian.

On the history, the owner complained of chronic abdominal enlargement initiated more than 4 months ago, reduced appetite, occasional vomiting and general dullness. He also complained of greenish mucous intermittent vaginal discharge starting 10 days ago.

The bitch was chronically treated with medroxiprogesterone acetate.

A laparatomy was performed and fluid in the abdomen was found and aspirated during the surgery.

Also a very fluid-filled distended uterus and a mass in the distal part of the left uterine horn were found. The mass was encapsulated by the omentum, but areas of necrosis and calcification were identified.

Histopathological diagnosis was endometrial adenocarcinoma.

Prognostic factors in cats with HCMmembers
Left atrial (LA) enlargement, congestive heart failure (CHF), and aortic thromboembolism (ATE) are associated with decreased survival in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), but the prognostic value of echocardiographic variables has not been well characterized. Do LA echocardiographic variables and assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic and systolic function have prognostic value in cats with HCM?
